Ebola Virus

Ebola Virus

Published on: - By: Carlos Brian Hernandez

Recently there has been an outbreak in the United States. The Ebola virus has infected 2 Americans, news report that Nancy Writebol (59) and Dr. Kent Brantly (33) were treated in Emory University Hospital (Atlanta, US).

Sani Dental Group knows the possibility of an epidemic outbreak, and thats why we would like to provide all of our patients and readers helpful information to prevent and reduce the risk of contagion.

With the help of WebMD, we can learn and understand the disease symptoms and treatment options.

What Are the Symptoms of Ebola?

Early on, Ebola can feel like the flu or other illnesses. Symptoms show up 2 to 21 days after infection and usually include:

  • High fever
  • Headache
  • Joint and muscle aches
  • Sore throat
  • Weakness
  • Stomach pain
  • Lack of appetite

As the disease gets worse, it causes bleeding inside the body, as well as from the eyes, ears, and nose. Some people will vomit or cough up blood, have bloody diarrhea, and get a rash.

Treatment Options

Currently there is no vaccine for this disease, however in recent news there is a mention of a vaccine; but at this time the Central for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has not made any comment.

With this in mind, if you experience any of the symptoms mention above; visit your doctor and inform him immediately. Other recommendations you should follow are:

  • Constantly replenish fluids
  • Replace lost blood (worse cases)
  • Maintain proper blood pressure

Following these steps, you can prevent the risk of contagion and you can live an infection-free life.

  • People can survive the Ebola virus.
  • Outbreaks occur in places with poor health infrastructure.
  • Ebola can pop up in random countries, but it can be contain if we take the proper preventive procedures.

We hope these tips are helpful and assist in preventing contagion.

Even though the Ebola virus can be contain, we understand that there is the risk an outbreak can occur, especially if we live in weak health infrastructure environment; to reduce the risk of infection we need to get informed and follow the instructions professionals offer.
